Château de Plaisance - Boutinot

Meet the Producer

The estate, 25 hectares in total with 17ha in current production, is comprised entirely of plots within either Grand Cru Quarts de Chaume, Premier Cru Chaume or Savennières. With significant land on the ‘Butte de Chaume’ and small parcels in ‘Mauriers’ and ‘Gabillards’ in Savennières this is some fairly serious terroir and yet a significant proportion of what they produce is deliberately declassified to simple ‘Anjou Blanc’. The reason? Chaume and Quarts de Chaume are appellations for sweet wines only and owner Vanessa Cherruau sees her future mainly in producing dry wines from these famous sites.
